busselineSouthern Coaches is Alabama’s premier carrier! We say that a lot, but it took a lot to earn the claim.  From the very beginning our commitment has remained the same: to provide a safe, memorable, and exceptional travel experience to every single one of our passengers through our gracious, knowledgeable, and professional staff and our first-rate motorcoaches. In the Main Office we have knowledgeable, friendly and efficient Charter Sales Representatives who go above and beyond to ensure a well satisfied client. Mr. Adams and his staff regularly encourage people to visit Southern Coaches facilities, and compare the company’s capabilities and services with other companies they may be considering for their transportation needs.


Our business is service and your satisfaction is paramount to us. Our goal is to provide quality service coupled with reasonable prices and the most fuel-efficient, reliable, safe mode of transportation on the road today – the modern motorcoach. Our large volume of repeat customers confirms our commitment to our goal. We leave the easy part to you: leaning back in your plush reclining seats and enjoying a safe and pleasant ride. We don’t want you to worry as we get you to your destination on time!


Our Drivers

Our Motor Coach Operators are trained, uniformed professionals who do their utmost to provide the safest ride possible for our passengers. They are courteous, competent drivers who operate their motor coaches in a safe, efficient manner at all times, and attentively see to our passenger’s needs. And they are usually pretty entertaining! We are proud to say that our drivers willingly and consistently go above and beyond their call of duty. As qualified interstate drivers, they meet a multitude of rigorous federal standards. Driving records are checked on a regular basis, and drivers must pass a physical examination, which includes a drug screening. Southern Coaches takes pride in the safety records of our drivers, which has become a cornerstone of our outstanding reputation.

Our drivers are limited by federal laws as to the number of hours that they may drive on a designated trip or during the day. These “hours of service” regulations are for your safety. Should your trip require more than the allowable hours, we’ll make arrangements to have another driver ready to take over. Many states and provinces have other local restrictions limiting what the driver may do. Our drivers are familiar with all the various local laws regarding speed, parking, and routing.

Southern Coaches takes great measures to ensure the highest standards of care and maintenance of his fleet. We start by providing covered facilities for buses on the ready line, as well as an onsite shop with five maintenance bays and a separate wash and fuel building.busbay

Staff professionalism, safety, cleanliness and preventive maintenance are all points of pride for Southern Coaches. A 50-point inspection is conducted on every vehicle that returns from a trip, regardless of whether it is gone for one day or three weeks. Starters are changed every year, and other major components are changed before they fail. Two full-time mechanics, two maintenance helpers and a supervisor regularly attend Webinars and training for particular makes and models, with full-time mechanics certified on air brakes, electrical and other specialty components.

These practices are what has earned Southern Coaches a Number 1 rating issued by the Military Traffic Management Command of the Department of Defense, and assured them status as the only TSX Certified Carrier in Alabama.
